NO! I shouldn’t go there.
But I do. EVERY week. I simply have to find out what Gwyneth Paltrow is up to on Goop, her lifestyle website, and torture myself at the utter perfection that is Gwynnie’s life. With her rock-hard abs, toned thighs, designer wardrobe, rock star husband, cooking skills, and Oscar award — not to mention the fact she once dated Brad Pitt and was previously best mates with Madonna — is there is ANYTHING this woman cannot do?
So I try, desperately, to live my life according to Gwyneth’s rules. I’ve even bought Tracey Anderson videos and almost managed to keep up with the dancing (for about a minute). I’ve studied those cookbooks that promise that her (and your) kids will love Brussels sprouts — but when I try the same thing my kids spit them out and ask in all seriousness if I’ve tried to poison them. I’ve read about what spring wardrobe I should have, all the fine things Gwyneth will be wearing, before remembering I don’t have a spare $12,000 to spend. I’ve coveted her home furnishings and accessories, which as it turns out, are really made only for Hollywood stars and not us mere mortals.
Then I go away and feel like a complete failure. So, for once, I thought I would share the 7 best (or worst?) tips that Gwyneth imparted to us all on Goop — but are they helpful?
